This is very exciting to me also.
I have come across so many dead ends on this line and every time I find one they seem to be getting there information from the family search information which is full of incorrect data. At least according to the documents I have found.
John Wesley's first wife was Ina VanMeter. I have a picture of her if you would like a copy it is a ten type. Ina and John had one child, Charles who was half brother to my grandmother Nina Marie. I can remember uncle Charley from when I was a child. I have information on his birth and death also.
John W married a second time to my grandmothers mother, her name was Martha Emaline Virden they were married in Gillespie, Macoupin Co., IL.
I have no proof of the birthplace of Charles f/o Charles but the census information I listed my be the clue that we have both been looking for.
As far as the name HULL for the wife of Charles, that is the information my grandmother always told me, and what she had written in the family Bible. I know it goes against everything else I have seen BUT, no one else seems to have any proof that the maiden name was WARD. If someone does I would love to have it! When I ask people they say, "Oh I got it from so and so" then when I contact so and so they say they got it from family search or from a book that was not documented. So, I think my information is as good as any until someone can prove it one way or another. I for one would love to find the true name.
Until the other day I had not been able to find the family on the 1860 census, I decided to try a new spelling I had not tried, and there they were. I looked in Douglas Co. IL. because that is where John W HURTT was born in 1863 if the census information is correct then we should be able to find the marriage in Douglas Co. It would stand to reason that if they were there in 1860 when Charles shows up still living with his parents and his son was born in 1863 in the same county then his parents were more than likely married in Douglas county.
I have a picture of the HURTT family that I know you will be interested in, also a picture of the grave stone of Charles and Mary M. HURTT.
I'll send more information to your e-mail address.
Have you found the family on the 1850 census? I have not been able to locate them. I do have them on 1900 and 1920

Have a great night
Looking forward to hearing from you
